Exploring Abundant Faith
Herald Press releases women’s Bible study series
HARRISONBURG, Va., and KITCHENER, Ontario—Courage. Generosity. Abundance. These and other positive aspects of Christian faith are explored in the new Herald Press women’s Bible study series, Abundant Faith.
Herald Press has released four titles in this new study series. Using Abundant Faith as a guide, women can revitalize their faith and connect with God and each other through theme-centered studies that relate to everyday life. Each of the four titles includes 12 Bible study sessions and one closing worship service.
Money is the new “taboo topic,” some say. Bountiful Hearts opens the Scriptures as they talk about money and what we should do with it. The Bible shows us money through God’s eyes—on loan to us, and to be used as a blessing for all. This study helps readers explore the temptations of money, and how we can use money to reflect God’s bountiful sharing.
Courageous Women uncovers stories of biblical women who were unflinching in the face of difficulty. From the Old and New Testaments, the author draws stories both familiar and less familiar of women following God faithfully. These women speak boldly, seek justice, and prove themselves brave partners and friends in faith. Their inspiring stories are a biblical foundation modern Christians can turn to when facing the challenges of the day.
God is the great Giver. Generous Gifts is the third book in the Abundant Faith series. God’s lavish generosity in creation, healing, and relationships becomes an example to us. In gratitude, we join with God to offer healing and hope. Each chapter of the study considers one of God’s gifts: the Spirit; freedom; the spiritual gifts; grace; and more. The book offers opportunities for Bible study participants to together look at ways to share these divine gifts with others.
To offer supportive care to others, we first need to care for ourselves. Wonderfully Made uses the Bible as resource as participants consider how to care for their bodies, minds, and spirits. Chapters such as “Walk in the Way,” “Rest for Your Souls,” and “Seek Wisdom” lead into discussions of faith-centered personal wholeness and right living.
Each of these paperbacks come from earlier Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada Women’s Bible studies and are now being offered beyond the Mennonite churches. They are available for $9.99 USD/$11.99 CAD, with more information and ordering available at 800-245-7894 or at www.heraldpress.com.
